(See MONTH.) On it work was suspended (Amos 8:5), the temple was opened for worship (Isaiah 66:23), and in northern Israel the godly repaired to the prophets for religious instruction (2 Kings 4:23). The trumpets were blown, in token of gladness, at the sacrifices peculiar to the clay (Numbers 10:10; Psalms 81:3); but there was no "holy convocation" as on the sabbath. The seventh new moon of the religious year was the feast of trumpets and began the civil year.
